Holy Land Trip for Spring 2017

THE HOLY LAND: Your trip to the Holy Land will be an unforgettable and spiritually rewarding journey! Visit and venerate Christendom’s most sacred sites. See where Jesus spent most of his life and performed the many miracles you have read about in the Bible. Visit the cities of Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Nazareth, Capernaum, and Tiberias! Pray in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the Church of St Anne, the Russian Monastery of St. Mary Magdelene, the Pool of Bethesda, the Tomb of the Virgin Mary, the Prison of Christ (Praitorion), and The Church of the Holy Apostles and the Church of the Transfiguration on Mt. Tabor. Take the cable car up to the Mount of Temptation Monastery and see the rock that Jesus actually prayed by. Visit the Church of the Nativity and touch the spot where Christ was born! Additional sites you will see are the Church of Tabgha (the Church of the Multiplication of Loaves and Fishes), Cana of Galilee, the Church of the Annunciation, the Garden of Agony, the Monastery of St. Gerasimos Iordanitis, the Church of St. Elisseos and the Tree of Zacchaeus. Take a boat-ride on the Sea of Galilee and experience a spiritual baptism in the River Jordan. Enjoy a private audience with Patriarch Theophilos III (subject to his availability) and attend midnight Liturgy at the Holy Sepulchre.

Visit the Christian Palestinian village of Taybeh in the West Bank, the only Christian town left in Israel and Palestine, where Our Lord took refuge just before His crucifixion.
